The concept of a physical office or workplace as a business hub of productivity is quickly being replaced by the virtual office or mobile workspace, enabling users to connect to business critical data and applications anytime, anywhere and on any device.
The current business landscape favour’s those who are nimble and able to adapt rapidly by collaborating on the go, sharing ideas quickly and anticipating customer needs. Luckily, businesses today can achieve this dynamic work environment through the use of web-based applications for both desktop and mobile platforms.
Businesses of all sizes and in all sectors now have instant access to a range of computing resources and applications that were previously the exclusive domain of large enterprises. To a degree, this has levelled the playing field between large and small businesses; allowing the smaller, more agile businesses to effectively compete for projects, and in locations, that may have proved difficult in the past.
Take the office with you
Cloud and mobility services empower employees who work anywhere. Set up a shared folder from your mobile device while on the train; create a new spreadsheet on your tablet at lunch; download a presentation from the company shared drive and make edits from your home computer or schedule a team meeting from anywhere. You can even securely access important business applications, like HR and accounting, while on-the-move using YSCloud.
Office 365 can be installed on up to 5 devices, giving businesses the ability to do more than just read documents from a mobile device, a tablet, a laptop or even a desktop by extending the office experience to employees wherever and whenever they need to conduct business.
Implementing Cloud services lets multiple team members work on a document at the same time, using Office Web Apps. As new edits are made, changes are highlighted within the document for all users to see.
This increased level of collaboration saves time and eliminates version control issues. Also, because documents are stored in the cloud where staff can access them from anywhere they have web access, employees will always be able to pull down the latest version of a document.
Whether at the office, the airport, a client meeting or simply trying to catch up on the latest presentation edits at home, having the latest documents on-demand helps businesses increase productivity. With Office 365 designed to work seamlessly with OneDrive for Business, businesses can access what they need anywhere, anytime from virtually any device.
Business teams can be face-to-face, even when they are physically hundreds of miles apart. Whether they are using a shared calendar, sending a quick instant message update or video conferencing from a mobile, tablet or desktop, Office 365 makes it easier for businesses to collaborate in real-time and to connect with their teams.
